DISEASED CATTLE.-We have been in- formed by many respectable parties, and, among others, by a physician of considerable eminence in this city, who called on us for the purpose last evening, that the number of cattle und sheep, diseased and dying at the présent time, in the County of Cumberland, was under-estimated in our statement a ftw mornings ago. The gentleman we more pai ticiibirly allude to, remarked,-and we men- tion it because we have heard the same remark made by other medical men,-that these rav- ages of disease among the inferior animals ure generally ominous of destructive maladies m the human family. We think Government should at once adopt effective measures to insure a strict inspection of all cattle slaugh- tered for the Sydney market. INSOLVENT COURT.-The business of the Insolvent Court now terminates at one o'clock j but to vuit the convenience of par- ties about to file after the current month, the Office will' remain open till half-past three in the afternoon.

ADVERTISEMENTS. To Licensed Victualler« and Others. LAVERS AND CO.'S GINGER WINE. SINCE the introduction of the above article by the undersigned, advantage has been taken of the demand for the same, and an article bearing the name of Ginger Wine soldat a low price, but of a most inferior, and positively injurious character. We therefore take the present opportunity of informing the trade, that we have greatly re- duced its price, looking for a remuneration m a corresponding increase of sale. The fact that our Ginger Wine has been re- peatedly sent to the India market, and realized a higher price than Ginger Wine sent there from England, is a sufficient guarantee for its charac- ter. Our other Liqueurs and Cordials ara well and favourably known. Country buyers are respectfully informed that the articles before mentioned may be obtained either of us direct, or of any Wine Merchant in Sydney. , J. V. LAVERS AND CO., 186 335, George-street.

CHAP. V. — EMPLOYERS AND EMPLOYED. [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 30 January 1851

CHAr. V.-EMPLOYERS AND EMPLOYED. IT is essential to a good understanding between the employer and the employed, that each party should thoroughly comprehend the position anil claims of both. Whilo neither rofuses to move from its own point of view, or to tako any esti mato of tho other's rights, reconciliation will re- main impossible. A writer of last year* was not so fur mistaken in Raying " ' Rights of property* should bo the watchword of the working man; 'rights of labour1 the watchword of the capitalist and tho employer." For tho Christian maxim is a universal rule : " Look not every man on his own things, but ovory man on the things of others." This lesson is needed by the working ninn nt least as much as by his master. Perverted as the labourer's position may be, wronged as he often is, it is undeniable that he, together with some of his heartiest friends, have shown themselves too apt to lay the hlamo in wrong quarters, and I , * In " l'olities for the Peoplo." consequently ...

MEETING OP COUNCIL.-It u thought desirable that before the Bill is brought under the consideration of the Legislative Council, the public should be in possession of so much of the information to be collected by the ap- proaching Census as will show the number of inhabitants contained within the respective electoral districts. The Census is to be taken on the 2nd duy of March'; and in order to give time for the preparation of the returns to that extent, it is intended that the Council shall be summoned for the transaction of business, either on the last Tuesday in March or on the first Tuesday-in April.

Yesterday evening an Extraordinary sized fish I was observed to rush in towards the shore, near the slaughter house, making a noise not unlike that produced by the letting off of steam, and leaving a phosphorescent like track in the water of about twenty yards in length. After plunging about for some seconds in the . shallow water, close by the shore, he suddenly darted round toward!' the middle of the bay and disappeared.
